About this event
Working together on enhancing ELT capacity in Indonesia…
The British Council Indonesia and the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) are organising 3 English language teaching (ELT) themed events over 3 days, as part of the drive to support new UK-ID ELT partnerships.
This 3-day event aims to facilitate sharing of expertise and experience between UK and Indonesian education institutions, government agencies, ELT and EdTech companies. It is focused on innovation, best practices and enhancing the quality of English language teacher training, teaching, and learning.
Day 1: Official launch of UK-ID digital innovation grants to support teacher professional development (TPD) in schools and Higher Education Institutions
Following the launch, the British Council will be inviting grants applications for UK-ID innovative and collaborative approaches to support English teacher professional development in schools and Higher Education. Grants will be awarded to UK-ID partners to design, develop, pilot, and evaluate TPD resources with the potential to be used at a national scale.
Grant categories will include the following areas:
- TPD resources to support pre-service and in-service school teachers – for example, open online courses
- TPD resources to support teachers working in rural and remote areas – for example, areas requiring low tech innovations

Full details about the British Council UK-ID digital innovation grants will be published on the British Council Indonesia website on Monday 27 September.

Leading ELT experts from Indonesia will present the teacher professional development landscape in Indonesia, including public and private innovations, current TPD needs, and opportunities.
These sessions are aimed at potential grant applicants, all ELT professionals interested in innovations in teacher professional development as well as educational institutions, schools and government agencies with teacher training needs.
Day 3: Sharing Innovations in English Language Teaching & Exams
Day three will focus on sharing innovations in English language teaching and exams in the UK and Indonesia.
